Today’s Key Scripture
“Know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.”
— Deuteronomy 7:9
God is a covenant-keeping God, and our salvation is a covenant that embraces our entire family. Because of that covenant, our loved ones will serve the Lord.
This principle is seen in Scripture where God commanded Moses to take a lamb for a house: “Speak to all the congregation of Israel, saying: ‘On the tenth of this month every man shall take for himself a lamb, according to the house of his father, a lamb for a household’” (Exodus 12:3).
Under the Old Covenant, a lamb was offered during the Feast of Passover for the forgiveness of sins. During the Passover Feast, every Jewish household offered one lamb for their entire family—a lamb for a house.
A powerful truth is revealed through this illustration. When one person received the lamb, it became available for the entire family. Jesus Christ came as the Lamb of God under the New Covenant. If one person accepts Jesus, the true Passover Lamb, salvation is made available to his entire family as well.
Your family can be saved! Don’t miss what He has in store for you and your loved ones!
A Prayer for Today
Precious Lord, I want more of You today. I desire to be used in Your service to reach others, especially my lost loved ones. May every stronghold of the Enemy that seeks to enslave and destroy be barricaded from the unsaved. You are the Lord over the entire universe, and in Jesus’ name I bind all the forces that come against my loved ones. I plead over us Jesus’ precious blood that was shed on Calvary. I desire to become closer with You every day so I can be an effective witness of Your love, peace, joy, and salvation. I pray all this in the name of Jesus, amen.
